Junior DB Rashard Causey of Fort Lauderdale had planned to be in Columbia for the weekend of the Clemson game but ended up staying home with his family for the holiday.
Causey continues to favor USC and Miami at this point. He talked on the phone Tuesday with USC recruiter Grady Brown and will visit USC unofficially the second week in January for a junior day. He also plans to visit Southern Cal and UCLA early next year.
Causey also has offers from Florida, Florida State, Arkansas, West Virginia, Tennessee, Notre Dame, NC State, Penn State, Pittsburgh and others.
Causey plans to make his decision next summer.
